Winner winner, chicken dinner! (updated)

For the second game in a row, Michael Parkhurst has hit the winner - but in far more dramatic circumstances. With 15 minutes left, the U.S. man accepted a target man lay-off to leave the home keeper no chance for the 1-0 at AGF Aarhus. The victory restored the Superliga holders to third place through six rounds.

UPDATE: Full match highlights, with the Parkhurst goal play starting at 3:59.

Does this mean Aarhaus is back in the top flight? I wouldn't be surprised if Benny F's agent weren't making some inquiries with the old colleagues. Ya know, just in case.

I know that I would.

They were back the season after he left, he helped them get there.

Oh nuts. I might be a chauvinist for thinking mls is at least on par with the Danish top flight, but I'd imagine Feilhaber must feel some twinge of regret for leaving.

Is it possible that Geiger is actually getting worse? There's often a lot of hyperbole thrown around about MLS officiating, but that was actually embarrassing. Glad for the road point, but ... man.

How come Parkhurst is so far up the field in most of the sequences in the higlights (my theory, he thinks he's Dani Alves - he even said he wants to face Barcelona in Champions' League)? He's probably the last fullback I would have expected to live in the opponent's half - what a transformation! And does that make him more attractive to JK, or did MOF's Azteca heroics at the same position effectively shut the door on Mikey?
